Cultivating great musical taste

Song of the Day: Ghosts by Laura Marling

Laura Marling is an absolutely phenomenal singer, songwriter from Hampshire. Her first wo albums were both nominated for the Mercury prize and last year she even won the Best Solo Female award at the BRITs despite many people still not knowing who she is.

Well, who is she? She is the best folk artist to have graced the British music scene for a very long time. You could even say she was the one who brought about this seemingly unstoppable wave of new folk artists. NME have dubbed her the godmother of the nu-folk movement and she’s still incredibly humble for someone with this success.

She’s a lyrical genius and with her third album released last year she’s still going strong. Ghosts is a catchy song that will have you pressing repeat. Yet unlike most ‘catchy’ songs it has a lot of substance and is full of meaningful lyrics as opposed to the superficial ones you’re bound to get from people like Rhianna. It’s a great track and is one of her standouts and is a good example of just how amazing Marling is.
